A group of sons and daughters of Edo Central senatorial district “Esan Patriots” in Europe has called on Barr. Kenneth Imansuangbon to contest the 2016 Edo governorship poll.
The call was made at the party held by Esan sons and daughters in United Kingdom to welcome Barr. Imansuangbon back to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking on behalf of the group, its president, Mr Francis Okoemu said, “We are grateful for the ‘unparalleled development’ Governor Adams Oshiomhole has brought to Edo State, and the only credible and trustworthy person to continue from where Oshiomhole will stop is Imansuangbon. Edo South and North senatorial districts have had their turns of eight year, it is now the turn of Esan land.
Mr Okoemu described Barr. Imansuangbon as an illustrious son of Esan land in particular and Edo state in general, who believes in justice, fairness and equity.
“The Almighty God has done us well, by giving us a great son like Barr. Imansuangbon. Thousands of our youths have benefited from his scholarships scheme. He also sponsors free medical services to Esan community and beyond, especially the less privileged,” he noted.
He urged Governor Adams Oshiomhole and the good people of Edo State to support the Esan to produce the next state governor.
